From the time of Art Tatum, though years Oscar Peterson led what some consider the perfect Jazz Trio, into the modern Jazz era with the likes of Brad Mehldau, there are many different instrumentations used in Jazz Trio But when people think of Jazz Trio, you know what they are talking about. Piano-bass-drum Jazz Trio is, with little argument, quintessential Jazz group. Back in 1996, pianist Mehldau released the first of a series of Recordings titled Art of Trio in recognition of the historic and continuing perfection of piano-bass-drums Jazz combo by a multi-Grammy nominated performer whose career has never strayed far from format. And while Nov. 30 Visit to. Cecilia Music Centers Jazz Series by Mehldaus latest Trio may well be the must-see concert this year concert where he will undoubtedly continue to prove the adage there are local Jazz performers bouncing around the Grand Rapids Music scene that also offer proof of just about every night of the week. Most great Jazz pianists going back to the mid-1940s have performed and recorded in this format, so each succeeding generation of young musicians has been exposed to, and influenced by, these artifacts, says Steve Talaga, pianist with a long history in area Jazz scene and currently adjunct professor of Music At Hope College. This Trio format is also a situation which offers a perfect blend of interaction and freedom. You have multiple musicians contributing musical ideas to stew, but not so many that things get muddle, he say. Once drums are paired with piano, bass range can sound a little weak, so adding string bass reinforces low register, creating a perfect musical scenario. Robin Connell, also a local pianist and music instructor, liken musical range of piano Jazz Trio as being group discussion. In terms of Jazz as an art form, best Jazz trios musically interact continuously so that their performance can be like listening to group discussion, she say. Just as in listening to three people talking together, conversation can flow easily and equally and be heard by listeners. Larger groups rely either on more write music less improvisation, taking turns improvising, or music that is simple harmonically. But Jazz people will tell you that not only is the piano Jazz Trio Jazz club mainstay for musical reasons, there are also logistical and economic reasons as well. Economics enter the picture, although not as much for established artists of international stature, Connell say. Very few places anywhere in the US pay living wage for live music unless the venue is booking named artists. This is true for Jazz as it is for all other live music. I imagine the history of Jazz Trio includes that reality and certain combinations, such as piano / bass / drums, become standard. Talaga agree, but knows economics has never overshadowed music. Economics do play a role, of course. More so all the time, Talaga say.

AllMusic Review by Francois Couture

If Necks settle on their music recipe in Silent Night, they get sauce right in Piano Bass Drums. One of the reasons to explain it, apart from the fact that the group keep on growing in terms of synergy, is the fact that this album was recorded live and each member focus on their primary instrument. As a result, structure of music get even more minimal than before, but it gains in interplay, artistry, and purity. The Trio starts on a waltz-like 3 / 4 riff, repeating a two-chord motif for an extended period of time with very little changes. Then, they gradually speed things up. As Chris Abrahams starts to add more and more ornaments, listeners lose initial chords, opening piece to free improvisation. Abrahams is a fantastic pianist and this CD is the first where he gets to truly shine. Lloyd Swanton keeps time with his double Bass, but he also strips off waltz feel and tonality with reinforced subtlety. Tony Buck's cymbal playing is brilliant. Start as a Jazz waltz of sorts, very lush and comfy, piece ends up 50 minutes later as atonal Piano improvisation sustained by steady pulse of undetermined time signature. Yet, listener barely sense movement-simply stunning. Piano Bass Drums doesn't have the beauty of Aether or the hypnotic drive of Hanging Gardens, but it nonetheless stands among the group's best efforts and make excellent place to start exploring their discography.

How does the class work?

Timpani look like big polish bowls or upside-down teakettles, which is why they're also called kettledrums. They are big copper pots with drumheads made of calfskin or plastic stretch over their tops. Timpani are tune instruments, which mean they can play different notes. Timpanist change pitch by stretching or loosening drumheads, which are attached to foot pedal. Timpani are a central part of the percussion family because they support rhythm, melody and harmony. Most orchestras have four timpani of different sizes and tune to different pitches and they are usually played by one musician, who hit drumheads with felt-tip mallets or wooden sticks. A Timpani player must have a very good ear because he / she usually needs to change pitches of drums during performances. The Xylophone originally came from Africa and Asia, but has a Greek name that means wood sound. Modern xylophone has wooden bars or keys arranged like the keys of a piano, which player hits with a mallet. You can change the quality of pitch by using different kinds of mallets, and by hitting wooden bars in different ways. Attach to the bottom of wooden bars are metal tubes called resonators, where sound vibrate. This gives the xylophone its bright bell-like sound. There are several other instruments similar to the xylophone, which are also part of the percussion family. They include marimba, larger version of xylophone with wood or plastic resonators attached to the bottom of wooden keys, which gives it a mellower, more rounded sound, and vibraphone, which has both metal bars and metal resonators, with small rotating disks inside. Disks are attached to a rod, which is turned by an electric motor. When you play sustained note on vibes and the motor is running, disks create vibrato, or wiggly pitch. In addition, percussionists often play glockenspiel, which is a miniature xylophone with metal bars instead of wood. Percussionists use hard mallets to play glockenspiel, which sound like clear tinkling bells. Cymbals are the biggest noisemakers of orchestra. They are two large metal discs, usually made of spun bronze. Cymbals, which are untuned, come in a range of sizes, from quite small to very large. The larger cymbal, lower the sound they make. Cymbals can be used for drama and excitement, to accent rhythm or create delicate sound effects. You can play cymbals either by hitting one cymbal against other, or you can use sticks, mallets or brushes to hit one or both cymbals. You've probably played triangle yourself at one time or another. It's small metal bar that's bent into the shape of a triangle and makes a ringing sound when you hit it. There are many sizes of triangles and each one sounds different pitch. You play triangle by holding it on string and striking it with a metal beater.
